We ask that you still pay the $10 Recital Fee. Your child will wear a specific color leotard and tights and we will provide a skirt/ hairpiece to be returned the night of the recital after the finale. Typically, preschool classes wear pink leotard, beginner classes wear black leotard. Ballet classes wear pink tights, tap classes wear tan tights. Classes that do not order professional costumes will have open enrollment Spring session and new students may join the class.
The Spring Recital is a non-profit opportunity for you child to experience dance beyond the class room. We encourage every dancer to participate. We understand there is an additional expense involved, however we do our best to ensure every child can participate regardless of cost. We do fundraising to help offset expenses in an effort to keep them low. If you are concerned about cost, please e-mail me.
